E911 Trust addresses emergency call issues

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Hamilton agreed this was an issue to be addressed.
“Proper hand off is vital,” said Kelly Deal, OTEMS director.
“We are not trying to scare anyone, we just want to educate the public so they are prepared,” Puckett said.
Given the projected weather events, people should take a minute to add the numbers for their local agency into their cell phone, the board advised.
Just because these issues have occurred, it does not mean every 911 call from a cell phone will be sent outside Rogers County, according to Hamilton.
It is just important for callers to be prepared, according to Puckett.
The main number for the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office is (918) 341-3535.
